My self-summary
I hew towards optimism but have learned to be realistic and measured in my approach towards life and people.

Here are a few other tidbits:

1. I grew up in Florida and through school/work have made my way up the Eastern seaboard. I consider myself a New Yorker and love all things cosmopolitan, but hold fiercely onto my small town roots.

2. My best friends are my dogs Felix and Athena. They enrich my life beyond words. Obviously, we're not going to be a match if you aren't a dog person.

3. One of my goals is to visit at least one National Park a year. I have been on a pretty good roll the last few years, and hope to continue until I visit all the National Parks.
What I’m doing with my life
After spending much of my life focusing on others (not necessarily a bad thing), I've taken the last few years to consciously "do me" and grow in the process. I think that was necessary in order to carve out some balance, and now that I am in a great place, I am open to building something special with someone.

Career-wise, I'm a corporate/intellectual property lawyer. it takes up a lot of my time but on most days I love it.

My hobbies include playing piano, traveling, hiking, and putting together lego sets. I'm pretty game to trying out most things at least once, so if you're looking for an activity companion count me in. I also volunteer with various causes, legal and non-legal.
I’m really good at
1. Staying cool under pressure.

2. Recalling random trivia useful only for jeopardy and quiz games.

3. Fantasy football.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a goofball grin and will most likely be distracted by passing dogs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love both "respectable literature" (e.g., on the Booker Prize short list) and trashy summer mindless reading (e.g., Anne Rice novels, Sookie Stackhouse series). I generally alternate from fiction and nonfiction in my queue.

Movies: summer blockbuster/action and comedies. I like indies also, but not the over-the-top contrived ones.

Shows: The Flash, Mindy Project, Modern Family.

Music: Musician at heart and appreciate lots of genres. Really love going to concerts.

Food: I love trying all kinds of food (semi-foodie here) but not a big fan of offal/organ meats.
Six things I could never do without
I'm pretty self sufficient and don't need much to get by, but here's a few in no particular order:

Sports, books, my passport, my dogs, my kids, and hot sauce.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I am making good decisions and how life will unfold in the next few years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking it easy or hanging out with friends. Movies + good wine/food + good friends = perfection.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a dad - I have twin boys.
You should message me if
You're fun, confident, and honest. You have a sense of where you are going with life, but still find adventure appealing. Kids and dogs don't scare you.

If any of the above appeals to you and you'd like to get to know more of the details, hit me up. Thanks guys!
The two of us
